This is the Writers’ Rebellion: Are You Here For This?
The Extinction Rebellion Podcast is back to normal length; with an episode perfect to kick back to during the post rebellion regenerative period. It features a feast of stories and poems from the Writers’ Marathon in Trafalgar Square, London (on the 11th of October, 2019).
From Salena Goddens’ call to action, to Philip Hoare’s face-to-face encounter with a whale, Owen Sheers’ poem to his daughter in the womb, to Natasha Walter and Tom Bollough’s recollections of being arrested for Extinction Rebellion.
Oh, and there is also an interview with Booker Prize co-winner, and author of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Testaments”, Margaret Atwood.
Other writers featured in this episode include; Salena Godden, Ali Smith, Naomi Alderman, Anjali Joseph, Irenosen Okojie, Robert Macfarlane, Romesh Gunesekera, Simon Schama, and comperes Simon McBurney and AL Kennedy.
